Slowly everything falls.

So quietly and so unnoticed do shadows slide away in the black night.
I step where we put our feet in a past treasure.
I quietly whisper your name, but hear only echoes of the sad whispers of the winds.
As quietly as they whisper your name too, but the call is hardly heard as insistent.

So quiet are my steps as subdued rubs in the loose gravel, I’m missing the beat and stride of your footsteps right now
I see shadows and silhouettes we know so well, but nothing looks so familiar anymore you.
I just know that you quietly fade away, for every step I take there increases the distance.
So quietly a tear runs down my cheek, why did you find another to follow you.

So quietly and slowly everything falls apart and I miss you in this dark world.
I no longer hear your voice in my ear, forgotten are all the words we told in our journey.
I feel like you’re slowly falling away from me, but forever I will keep the memories and remember you.
So quietly we drift away from each other, but you must know that I will always love you.

So quiet it has become here without you, so slowly do the emptyness fall inside me like snowflakes.
I still have everything to say to you, but know that the words disapear and evaporate like morning dew.
I call after you one last time, but the words slowly fall into the Well of oblivion.
So quietly I walk alone now, while inside myself I send you my very last prayer.

So quiet it has been around the two of us, but the memories still rumble in my dreams.
I think about how you feel now, do not rejoice over the loneliness loose seams.
I know that everything is slowly falling, I wonder if one day you will hear me call on you one quiet night my friend.
As quiet as when love hits you, I wait for you until you slowly fall again and be here to catch you.

Hey Destiny Poets. I live in Denmark about 90 km from Copenhagen and works in Roskilde as a teacher and mentor. I'm probably not like most men of my age and yes I am aged 50 years old. I've tried a lot of jobs without finding what I'm passionate about. Writing, I have always loved and I was probably just 14 years old when I produced my first poem. I have not yet been released some of my poems, but I hope it happens one day. I just finished a novel which I would like to have published, now the time and talent show whether I have the ability to write. Poetry has a special meaning for me and this is where I really feel at home. My life has sometimes been marked by many losses. In the mid eighties, I lost my fiance at the time when the accident happened was pregnant. She lost control of the car and drove herself and her child, who was on his way thereby, to death. It has really made its mark on my life and way of thinking. In the late nineties, I had problems with my back and had to seek other avenues to support myself. I finally decided to enroll at university and was admitted to the humanist line. I read philosophy, science, psychology, journalism and history, but philosophy and psychology is my major interest. I thrive today in the RUC aka Roskilde University just 25 km from Copenhagen. My job is to guide and teach, and it is a job with speed and that gives me a lot again. I have two collections of poems ready to be released, if I can find a publisher who will publish them. I have no children, it would obviously be my lot in life although I have tried, but luck never smiled at me that way. If you have any questions for me so I hope you just ask away all you want, I'll respond as soon as I have read the questions. With kindest regards from Jan Sorensen
